in reply to Efficient code.

It's not clear from the context, but are you just looking for set intersection? I mean, if the comparison is merely "is this line of B also a line in A in its entirety", then the problem is trivial:

open A, "a" or die; my %in_a = map { $_, 1 } <A>; open B, "b" or die; while (<B>) { print if $in_a{$_}; }
